Academic Writing with EndNote

A LibGuide to accompany the online workshop for NTU staff and students

Finding Duplicates

After importing references from various sources, you may have duplicate references in your Library. EndNote has a simple function to weed out these duplicates for you. Just follow the steps below to weed out the duplicate references so that you can make the decision on which reference to keep.

Making Annotations

An easy way to track your research is by annotating your references and PDFs collected in EndNote. These annotations are searchable and can be easily retrieved on EndNote.


You can do this by adding your own notes or keywords to individual references.



If there are PDF files attatched, you can also highlight and annotate text in the PDF as well.

Sharing your Library

You can share the references that you've collected with your classmates and project mates easily by sharing your EndNote Library with them. Watch this video for more information on this convenient feature.

Generate abbreviated or full journal names using Term Lists

Use EndNote’s Journal Term List to substitute abbreviations in your journal citation with Term List

In EndNote, there are a number of term lists (chemistry, medical, physics, etc) to ensure that the journal names in your reference list are either in full name or abbreviated according to your citation styles requirements.

A step-by-step guide on setting up term list can be found here. The video below provides a quick preview about Journal Term List:
